READ | Leo secures Mattress Online Man of the Match Award for derby showdown with the Blades

Rotherham United defender Leo Hjelde has earned himself the Mattress Online Man of the Match Award for Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield United at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

The Millers and Blades locked horns for a South Yorkshire derby which had plenty of effort and application from both sides.

In order to keep a dangerous Sheffield United outfit at bay, the Millers had to call on a defensively resolute performance and they did just that to secure themselves a share of the spoils.

Leeds United loanee Hjelde put in an assured performance down the left side, as he was tasked with keeping attacking wing-back Jayden Bogle and forward-thinking centre-back Anel Ahmedhodzic quiet.

He clearly caught the eye of the supporters too, with Hjelde winning 78.4% of the 3,335 votes. Lee Peltier was also nominated after impressing on the opposite flank, while skipper Ollie Rathbone and central defender Cameron Humphreys completed the nominees.
